al di la Restaurant Review

: The great beyond? Al di la (an Italian idiom and restaurant) is far beyond a local secret, as crowds mill about patiently on the corner for a seat at this husband-and-wife-operated establishment. Some manage to score space at the wine bar next door. Homemade pastas from chef Anna Klinger include tortelli di fave (ravioli filled with fava beans, mascarpone, pecorino and fresh mint). Entrées, like hanger steak “tagliata” with arugula and pork loin scaloppine with sage leaves and prosciutto served with sautéed potatoes, are just like your Italian mamma used to make. Best of all, service is caring and prices are gentle.
